Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez, has expressed his annoyance over his team’s lack of determination, as they lost 1-0 to Cadiz on Monday night.
The defeat shattered their slim LaLiga title hopes.
Lucas Perez netted the only goal of the game in the 48th minute to silence the home crowd.
Barca are now 15 points behind leaders Real Madrid with just seven games left to play.
Xavi said after the game: “We are angry, the players first, because we missed a golden chance to separate ourselves from those in the fight for the Champions League places and also to [keep] fighting for LaLiga, which we’ve practically said goodbye to now.
“I am annoyed and we have to be self-critical, myself first, as the coach. We’re playing to be in the Champions League, that’s why I am so angry. There was a lack of desire and determination. It’s been a really bad week and we have to turn things around as soon as possible.
“The players are pissed off. I’ve tried to encourage them after the match, but we must compete better. We have to look at what we have done wrong in defence and attack. On Thursday we have another final against Real Sociedad.”
